set. he's a failure, the family income has gone down $4,000 in 3 1/2 years under obama compared to $2,000 under george w. in eight years. >> because of that family income, that's not a made up number, that's a government number. i think both of these guys should be looking for permanent middle class tax cuts. permanent middle class tax cuts so that take-home pay will go up. i'll give you the last word. >> i found myself strangely agreeing with your plan to cut the middle class and take away the deductions and keep tax rates for people who make a lot of money like you and i fairly high. i think that makes abundant good sense. but we're forgetting one thing. the biggest challenge may be even more than anything is our debt and our deficit. and i think with governor romney and paul ryan figured out was they can't give $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and still eat into the deficit, which i think is our biggest national problem. >> i think -- >> you're right. he might be able to do it. he might be able to do it if they did your plan. >> i'm telling you. you know, you were a good tax break gov
of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e
of a president doing this kind of a speak and run is pretty unprecedented. here's what president obama's new york scrapbook looked like last year. he met with britain's prime minister, david cameron, had a sit-down with french president sarkozy, mr. obama also spoke one-on-one with israeli prime minister netanyahu. he met with all those world leaders, all these world leaders as well. 13 in all. similarly, there was plenty of meetings the year before and the year before that. in fact, keeping them honest, we checked and discovered that no president in recent memory has ever come up for the general assembly and not met with anyone. yesterday, white house spokesman jay carney said mr. obama has had over the last few weeks, quote, extensive consultations, unquote, with leaders especially in the arab world. >> the president obviously got a busy schedule. he has a busy schedule all the time. you know, it is a fact that he has in recent weeks been intensively engaged in matters of foreign affairs, and that's part of being president. >> republicans have latched on to this scheduling comment saying mr. ob
. in the year following president obama's inauguration, the economy lost 4.3 million jobs but adding in the revis numbers, 4.4 million jobs have been created since 2010. that makes the preside aet job creator and now 125,000 more jobs cread tha beforee took fi. but you know, we goto temper thr years aer te pective. recessn. we have still ly recovered about half of the jobs lost 2008 and hiring clearl n't strong enough to keep up with population growth. not t that the kinds of jobs being created are not necessarily higher incom jobs brooke? >> here's the other but, though, alison kosik. i can hear peopleat their heads and saying, fishy? lculing the numbers with 40 day to go. is there anything suspect here? that's a good question beuse evybody wants the know that. the timing is suspect. but from what we can t there's no conspiracy here. thiss real how the bureau of labor statistics operates. it goes ahead and revised the figures very frequently as it gets more and more information. in fact, these numbers could still be revised again in january. and you know this because when we come ou
.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this yesterday and suzanne, he did not seem concerned about this. he came to talk to us on his campaign plane yesterday saying that the obama campaign is basically trying to strike the football on the 30 yard line, there's still plenty of time left, and there is some truth to that. rick santorum and some of the midwestern states for a brief period, and then he was able to close the gap. mitt romney is a good closer. it will be interesting to watch these polls as the days going g on as we get to the debates that are coming up. they'll be critical. >> i'll have to beef up on my sports analogies as well. thank you, jim. good to see you. >>> a reminder we'll be dipping to both president obama and mitt romney's events here in ohio. the president is in bowling green. mitt romney is in bedford heights. we'll go live to both locations. to n
politifact looked at earlier this years -- something nancy pelosi put out -- that obama had increased the that the lease of any president and last six or seven presidents. it was all over facebook and exploded among democrats. i ended up giving that four pinocchio's and that became a viral thing from the other side. also looked at graphic elements that either campaign has put on there website. assertions of fact there that were wanting in both cases -- >> we try to do a lot of those things on facebook because the same way that chain e-mail's became a medium for transmittal of false information, the facebook posts that we called jpeg propaganda, especially during the occupy movement, became a way to spread propaganda. much of it inaccurate. it is tough. what we have to go through every day, this gets to the challenge -- any given day, there are probably 50 or 60 or 100 things we could check. we have for fact checkers. we have to be selective and lately, we focused almost entirely on the presidential campaign messages. but there are interesting senate races we have been unable to fact c
years ago, were pulling the wool over the eyes of voters even back then. at least with obama, as of we have heard, he is somewhat more circumspect when speaking in person about his new ones and some of the things you hear coming out of his ads. in one case, he corrected or contradicted his own advertising. to make my predictions, i sort of threw darts at the claims they make in their stump speeches, romney and obama. we recently did takeouts on the standard speeches that they give. one from each side. i predicted it is quite likely that we will hear mitt romney say that gasoline prices have doubled under obama, which is an example of one of those things that is, yes, literally true if you look at where gasoline prices were when he took office. they have plummeted due to the world wide near-depression we suffered, but the fact is that they have never quite gotten as high under obama as they work for several weeks in the summer of 2008 under bush. i think we will also hear president obama say that we have created half a million manufacturing jobs. he will drop his voice and say, in the l
's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worr
though is kind of instructive. right now president obama seems safely ahead in all of the polling. pennsylvania is actually the kind of state that mitt romney's promise a year ago he was going to be able to put into play the same way john mccain's promise was supposedly that. the reason why pennsylvania has become so solid democratic they've won in each of the past five elections is largely because theuburbs outsi philadelphia, white collar, affluent, right of center economically, left of center social issues have moved decisively towards the democrats. originally mitt romney was seen as a candidate who could appeal to those voters. but he's not making ma inroads there. as a result pennsylvania seems out of reach in an reastic scenario. >> he was doing so fund raising there. that may be the major reason while he's there although the aides ar being a bit coy pretending they think it's realistic to get the democrats that a sthere. wouldn't be first time. >> we'll see if they put any television montimeey or i that. >> let's see if they t up ere with some money. you've been taking a
president obama has been a stronger ally of israel's than any other president he served with in eight years. that in the words of the vice president. so that is also a big out on the campaign trail today, both sides trying to show who would be the bigger ally of israel at this point. >> all right, fascinating thanks so much, jim acosta. appreciate that. >>> and don't forget, you want to catch that first presidential debate, denver, colorado, romney versus obama. that's next wednesday, 8:00 p.m. eastern time he on c. >>> theh dayof the united natis general assembly and a side group is taking on auably the bloodiest and most brutal problem in the world today. syria. the conf there has reportedlyed more than 30,000 people since march of last yea more than twthirdsre civilians. this is youtube video out of aleppo, the city of aleppo. today, the german foreign minister made a plea before the assembly. >> translator: such suffering is speechless. bulsoimpells us to act. to this very day the security council hasailed to live up to its responsibility for peop in ria. >> germany is part of a special
for the last two years that's been mastered front and to think that's a byproduct of having divided government. it's not the rules committee faults. in part it's obama's all but i think it's in ways a byproduct of what it means to have divided government. that's something we have to continue to think about as we think about how to structure how the house works and what kind of tools we should build on the outside. for real quickly, getting time notifications your. i look at the different categories of congressional -- to the things work really hard on working with, one is taking advantage of the political pressures that exist. we can't create those. nonprofits love to create political pressure. so we take what we can get. and for house reform with the majority having changed hands twice in the last six years or so, that means that a lot has changed recently because that puts us in, the house anymore -- the thing i want to mention is broad norms around how things should function. to think the point out, one is work like this into transparency congress and the house been generally receptive to t
a speed of 768 miles an hour. the 43-year-old baumgartner completed his final test jump back in july. we'll let you know how it goes. arthel: okay. back to the campaign trail, right now one theme of president obama's re-election bid is equal pay for equal work. an assertion by the president and democrats that women earn about 77 cents for every dollar that men earn. but analysts raised questions about this hot button issue. chief national correspondent jim angle is live in washington. all right, jim, so what's the big deal? [laughter] >> reporter: well, arthel, the key assertion, as you say, is that women only make 77 cents for every dollar that men make. that is in obama ads and in his own statements. listen. >> president obama knows that women being paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men isn't just unfair, it hurts families. >> if you do the same work as a man, you ought to be paid the same wage as a man. [applause] >> reporter: now, of course, the problem is that's not true. the assertion that it's equal work for equal pay -- equal pay for equal work. the census da
four years ago. 44% is in cleveland and surrounding cuyahoga county where democrats outnumber republicans 2 to 1. >> i think what we are seeing is spin and hype on the part of the obama campaign to try to make it appear that they are going to cruise to victory in ohio. but when you look at the number, nearly 350,000 of those voters, are the decrease in the roles in the three largest counties. cuyahoga, hamilton and franklin county. >> it shows the democratic voter registration declined in eight key states outnumbers the republican decline by a 10 the 1 more gin. florida, democratic registration is down 4.9%. in iowa, down 9.5%. in new hampshire, down 19.7%. >> it's understandable that enthusiasm is going to wane a little bit from the historic moment. you can only elect the first african-american president of this country once. >> dip in registration framed by some as the interrupt of republican efforts to suppress the vote. accusation which ohio's secretary of state cat gori goricly -- categorically rejects. >> it has to do with integrity. they can't point to a voter removed f
tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give diplomacy time to work. we still do have time. the president has been clear and consistently clear in his determination to absolutely prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. there's no doubt about that whatsoever. >> but the leader of israel benjamin netanyahu doesn't say we've been very clear. he keeps calling us to lay out a deliberate red line here. there are people here in this world, key allies, that do
